Is 22 too old to get into Legos?!

Growing up, I never was able to wrap my head around the idea of Legos. Getting a new toy for your birthday that you then had to spend hours putting together was never that appealing to me.

Heck, the one time I did get a small Lego set (it was a tiny ambulance), I attempted to put it together, and after 5 minutes of low-effort trying, I asked my friend David to put it together for me.

My parents were not so proud.

But now that I've gotten older and gained a little more patience, I think I'm ready now to take on Legos. And now that Lego has these rockin' cool stores everywhere, I get excited just thinking about the prospect of getting a Lego set and actually putting the whole thing together.

I mean look at this awesome PIRATE SHIP!!And the accompanying "Loot Island."COOL!!

So the question is: is 22 years old TOO OLD to be getting STARTED with Legos?

I appreciate your input.

I was on ABC's World News! Whaaat?

So last week I was surprised to find out via friends and family that a short clip from one of my YouTube videos had been featured on ABC's World News with Charles Gibson during a story about the popular Texas gas station, Buc-ee's.

Check out the video from ABC News HERE! (My clip is toward the end)

I actually feel bad for Ashlee Simpson

It's quite a rare position that I currently find myself in: feeling bad for one Mrs. Ashlee Simpson Wentz.

Though I do not follow her on Twitter, I wanted to see what she was up to after being canned from her new CW show, Melrose Place, so I headed over to her Twitter page.

And what did I find but her last tweet written on October 20 saying, "On set with Heather Locklear and Brooke Burns- these ladies are freakin awesome- such a fun day!"And 2 days later she was fired. (Also canned was co-star Colin Egglesfield.)

Oops.

What makes it even greater is that rumor has it that a huge part of the reason she was fired was because her new, and much more experienced, co-star Heather Locklear couldn't stand her and demanded her gone.

I don't even watch the show. But I did see the first episode and kinda couldn't believe she got the job in the first place so I can't say I'm surprised.

Look, I don't get joy out of the fact that she was fired. In fact, I find it kinda sad. Being as famous as she is and not tweeting for this long is a huge sign of defeat in this day and age.

So she better get on it before she loses everything.

Not that there's much to save...
